On July 28, 2008, fourteen of our fellow classmates, additional spouses and friends got together for a mini-class reunion at the Seneca, Hoss’s restaurant across from the Cranberry Mall. Dick Healy brought his wife, brother (class of ’64) and his sister-in-law. Ron brought his wife, Joy Holt brought a friend and Blaine Uplinger brought his wife. We were twenty in all. The mini-reunion was preceded by a storm that almost ended the reunion before it began. About an hour before the mini-reunion began, an emergency announcement was made on the local cable that a severe storm was headed toward Venango County. Well, by 5:45, no storm was in sight, so I headed toward Cranberry. However, about a 1/4 mile from Hoss’s, the heavens broke open. My car began being pelted with what sounded like millions of 1/2 inch hail. After a few moments of this, my belief was that my car was being destroyed by mother nature. In a rush, I floored the car toward the awning of the new Cranberry Holiday Inn. Ducking under the overhang, I waited out the storm. Once the storm passed I proceeded on to Hoss’s where I found additional classmates huddled in their cars. However, once inside, we all joined in the fun of being with one another again. It was only after I left the mini-reunion I discovered how lucky we all were. It seems that while Hoss’s had plenty of electricity, everything on the Cranberry mall side of the road was dark and closed down. While we were there Carol Baker Boyle made the announcement of the Pre-reunion party that will be held at her farm on Friday, Sept. 19th.

On October 2nd, ten of our fellow classmates, and additional spouses, got together for a mini-class reunion at the Seneca, Hoss’s restaurant across from the Cranberry Mall. We all had a wonderful time catching up on each other’s lives, sharing stories, and reminiscing about our life and times growing up in Oil City during the 50’s and 60’s. There was even the possibility that our Larry Waitz and his wife Carol were going to surprise all of us at the get-together, but unfortunately he was not feeling well enough to attend.

Eleven of us from our class finally got together for lunch out at Hoss’s and we had a great time. I guess as long as I’m here (Carol) I get to do it again next month. Everyone thought that was a good thing to do, so while George Kern was here we figured we better do it, as he is leaving tomorrow for Michigan. George retired as of the 8th of June, along with Jim Etzel. Gail mentioned that someone else is coming around the 20th or so of August, so they want to do another get together then.
